HONG KONG — Zaha Hadid was in Hong Kong Friday to fete the opening of her Stuart Weitzman concept boutique. More than 300 fans swarmed around the futuristic store in Hong Kong’s IFC mall for a glimpse of the architect. Hadid arrived at the cocktail party clad in all black with electric blue Prada ankle boots and a metallic cape by Mary Katrantzou. On her wrist was a large latticed cuff she designed for Caspita.
A self-confessed shoe aficionado, Hadid says she’s long been familiar with the Weitzman brand. “Actually, I have Stuart Weitzman shoes from maybe 25 or 30 years ago, completely clear ones I bought from New York and I love them. They are still sitting on my table after all these years,” she said.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
